How It Works

  • Find merchants who offer rewards and what the rewards are for each one. There are over 430 GO LOCAL businesses and around 160 of them offer Rewards with your Rewards Card.
  • Present your GO LOCAL Rewards when you shop.


Merchants offer rewards in two ways.

"Show Your Card" Rewards (this will be the exclusive type of rewards offers starting 1/1/2020)

Merchants offering "show your card" rewards will give you a discount or reward for simply showing your card. Your card is not swiped, and these rewards are not tracked online.

"Swipe the card" Rewards (ending 12/31/2019)

Loyalty Rewards—Earn rewards for progress, like popular “punch card” loyalty programs with the added convenience of electronic tracking and a single card that works at many businesses.  View your account online to track the progress of all your loyalty rewards at multiple merchants.

GO LOCAL Bucks—Some merchants offer rebates in GO LOCAL Bucks on purchases made with your GO LOCAL Rewards Card.  Earn GO LOCAL Bucks on one purchase, then spend them on your next purchase at any merchant accepting GO LOCAL Bucks.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What about my privacy?

A: Privacy is important to us local folks. Your email will only be used by GO LOCAL/Sustaining Technologies, and optionally by the merchant who issued your Rewards Card; your information will not be distributed or sold to any third parties. You'll receive customized email updates from GO LOCAL with your Rewards Card activity and monthly e-news, and you have the option to opt out of both at any time.


Q: I tried to register my card online and it won't register.

A: Your card probably hasn't been swiped yet, which activates it so it can be registered in your name. Email your card number and we'll activate it for you, or just start using your card at an electronic merchant to activate it.

Q: I forgot my card at a merchant that offers GO LOCAL Bucks. Can you give me my credit after the fact?

A: No; you must supply your card to the merchant at the time of purchase to earn and spend your savings.

Q: The merchant wasn't able to process my rewards card - can I get the rewards processed now?

A: No; this card was free to you, and we can't control internet interruptions at our many merchants. We ask that you just wait to spend and earn savings the next time you shop!

Q: What's the balance on my card?

A: Log in to Go to "Your GO LOCAL Bucks Accounts" and click on your name to view your transaction history and balance.

Q: How do I log in?

A: Use your email or username if you know it. Enter your password, or click the link that says "If you forgot your password, click here to reset it.". You will receive an email with a temporary password that you can reset once you're logged in.

Q: My email or last name has changed - how do I update my account?

A: Email with your old and new emails or names and we'll update it for you!
